Culture, People, Projects 

"Give pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.

What is Exhibition?

Exhibitions are made most meaningful by the quality of the interactions between the presenters and the audience. Family members, non-profits, professionals, local business partners, entrepreneurs,  and other community members will be in attendance. Here are some suggestions:

  • Observe students and talk with them about their work.

  • Look for Complexity, Authenticity, and Craftsmanship in the work.

                              Exploring Access to Nature: Campification

11th grade teachers Pat Holder and John Santos have engaged their students in an exploration of our relationships with nature. They have examined the scientific, economic, political, and social systems that play into this interaction, generating a deeper understanding of how access to nature can impact our interest in preserving or exploiting the resources found in these natural spaces.
